OK, I know very little trivia about US geography, bombed out there. Got all the rest, but nearly sprained my brain with Sinclair Lewis. I could only dredge the Sinclair out of my brain not the Lewis, but I'm claiming points anyway. And the Source is the only Michener I've ever managed to finish. Ironically, I read it when on a dig in Italy. Ah memories. That is an AMAZING book.
